The dual meet scheduled for Friday night between No. 1 Texas women’s swimming team and No. 2 Stanford was canceled due to the poor air quality in Stanford, Calif.
The conditions for competition at the outdoor Avery Aquatic Center at 4 p.m. caused officials to delay the start time. The meet was eventually canceled and won’t be made up.
Smoke from the Northern California wildfires has compromised the air quality in the Bay Area, and our meet with @TexasWSD is cancelled today. It will not able to be rescheduled.Advertisement
